For almost 40 years, Overgaden—as one of the few established art institutions in Denmark focused on young artists—has been dedicated to providing emerging artists from all regions the possibility to experiment, develop, and unfold their ideas and practice on a grand scale, producing what, for most, would be the first grand-scale institutional solo show.

Overgaden has, since its founding in 1986, been an irreplaceable steppingstone for an array of artists—including Olafur Eliasson, Kirsten Justesen, Michael Elmgreen, Pia Arke, Adam Christensen, Lea Porsager, and Marie Lund—and the interest is only growing. Overgaden’s most recent Open Call attracted more than 660 artists’ applications.
